On April Foolsday in 1976 Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ron Wayne signed the founding contract for Apple Computer. The original contract has been sold at Sothebys books and manuscripts auction Tuesday afternoon to a phone bidder for $1.6 million. The tech fortune posted a video of the last minute of the Tuesday bidding for the documents, which started at $70,000 and ended 9 minutes later at $1.35 million. You can see the video after the break.

The documents went to Eduardo Cisneros, chief executive officer of Cisneros Corp. The Cisneros family, according to a 2006 Forbes listing, is the second wealthiest in South America.
